Florence Cathedral Tiles

And here they are in all their glory! Last term the children in Year 6 worked incredibly hard to create their own relief sculpture of the Florence Cathedral. The children have been so dedicated and carried out the following process:

• Rolling clay into a ball on a wooden board.

• Using batons and a rolling pin to roll clay on a board and cutting to desired dimensions.

• Wrapping clay in plastic so it remains workable from lesson to lesson.

• Adding detail by cutting clay away/drawing into clay or by adding clay in accordance with a design

• Adding clay by cross hatching a surface, adding slip to the cross hatched area and sticking a shape on before smoothing down the edges of shapes with fingers or a tool.

I am sure you will all be impressed by the quality of these magnificent tiles, well done Year 6!
